Tomas Bystrom The original is (and was from the start) one of my favorite 242 tracks. Actually it was the live version on Backcatalogue that caught my ear. The remastered track sounds brilliant!
The remixes are all good tracks in their own right. Favorite track: Take One (remastered version).

Myles Becker Been a fan of Front 242 for about 25 years, give or take a couple. I love that they are remastering and opening the vault to fans and collaborators. Great EP of remixes here, and especially love tefonik's take... Favorite track: Take One (Tefonik’s Ritual De Lo Minimo Remix).

In the summer of 2015, when announcing the upcoming release of the much awaited remastered version of their “No Comment” album due to arrive in spring 2016, FRONT 242 not only offered the unreleased RADICALG remix of “Take One” for free to their fans ( alfamatrix.bandcamp.com/album/lovely-day-remastered-take-one-radicalg-mix ), but also opened a remix competition for the same classic song as well.

Overwhelmed by the success of the competition and the several hundreds of remixes that got sent to Alfa Matrix, it took us much more time than initially expected to get all of these competition entries played to the various jury members and eventually reach a final top 3 of the most favorite remixes.

Today to thank you all for your much appreciated patience, we are proud to release with FRONT 242 the free “Detox Static” EP exclusively available only through Bandcamp. It features a remastered version of “Take One”, plus the remix work by the 6 (and not only 3!) first winners of the remix competition.  Congratulations to AD:KEY, EISFABRIK, KANT KINO, TEFONIK, RESTRICTION 9 and DIGITAL 440 for being part of the “Detox Static” sonic adventure. And a big thank you to all of you who took part in the competition. 

Enjoy this EP until we soon announce the upcoming remastered versions of several iconic FRONT 242 albums showcasing the band’s innovative sound in its best audio quality possible today. You will be able to hear these albums on vinyl and cd with the improvements or differences permitted by today's audio technology.

And 2016 being a very special year for both FRONT 242 and Alfa Matrix, you can definitely expect the unexpected! There is so much more to come... Stay connected!
